the course of these interviews that the obama administration has decimated al qaeda. the point these republican senators have been making is that that was a political statement because that served the white house well, to say that kind of thing before the election, because this was a big part of the president's campaign. >> interesting. >> that he got rid of bin laden. did she know the classified information? if so, why did she say that publicly about al qaeda when she may not have been able to talk about al qaeda with regard to this attack but might have known about it. >> so mccain said rice asked for this meeting. in light of what dana just said, how can rice win him over? >> look, i don't think it's about rice winning him over. i don't think this is about susan rice as much as it is about the unanswered questions of benghazi. we must understand something. there's very little leverage that senators in the minority have. one of the few things they can do is really make nominations and confirmations difficult. it's part of our system of checks and balances. i've seen it happen
